The general objective of the project is to contribute to increased dissemination and exploitation of the SSH projects research findings. The project, taking also advantage of new ICT-based technologies and tools, will :Provide consolidated information arising from FP6 & FP7 SSH research projects and activities addressing major societal challenges on issues close to the main political priorities of the EU identified in the new Europe 2020 strategy: 1. Innovation Union (including economic and social innovation, social cohesion and demographic changes); 2. Youth, 3. Employment, 4. Poverty; Develop effective communication tools (such as Policy Snapshots, Policy Research Alerts, Multi-stakeholder policy dialogue workshops, interactive and innovative web platform), engaging all relevant SSH players such as European, national and local decision-makers and multipliers (policy-makers, journalists, academics, industry, civil society organisations); Improve access to research data as results of SSH projects focusing on common rules and frameworks to be applied in data management, exploring the possibilities of ex-ante and ex-post coordination with FP funded projects. Expected outputs: Evaluation of the opportunities offered by new forms of ICT for networking and clustering ongoing SSH research projects and enable exchange and knowledge transfer between projects/clusters of projects; Assessment and collection of best practices among SSH research projects in exploiting ICT technologies for knowledge transfer and dissemination of results & key messages targeting different stakeholders; Dissemination of relevant SSH projects results through effective communication tools; Analysis of the state of the art related to the usage of Open Access pilot to identify data standards to be applied by the projects.
